Meyer Sound and NTi Audio have announced a new cinema meter option for NTi’s XL2 handheld audio and acoustics analyzer.
The Meyer Sound cinema meter option and test script is designed to allow cinema sound technicians to calibrate loudspeaker systems—beyond what is recommended by basic SMPTE standards—using a handheld device.
The cinema meter was initially created to extend the capabilities of the XL2 analyzer to facilitate alignment of Meyer Sound EXP cinema systems. The cinema meter option comprises a software package which includes a MeyerSound test script that can be used for tuning a cinema system. Test signals can be sourced through storage in the cinema system or from the NTi MR-PRO generator.
Slated to begin shipping in July 2012, the Meyer Sound cinema meter option will be available through NTi Audio’s sales channels either with the purchase of a new XL2 or as an upgrade to an existing unit. It will also be available through Meyer Sound EXP distribution channels.
